Sketch of man accused of sexual assault in Cary
CARY, N.C. -
Cary police have released a sketch of the man accused of sexually assaulting a young woman Saturday.
At about 9 a.m. Saturday, police responded to the Hawthorne at the Parkway complex in Cary, where the 20-year-old woman reported that a man who had been behind her in traffic followed her home, pulled up to her in the parking lot and warned her of damage to her vehicle.
After thanking him she headed to her apartment, where the same man pushed her inside as she was unlocking the door.
The suspect is described as a clean-shaven, light skinned black male who stands about 6-foot-1 and weighs 200 pounds. He has short black hair and pronounced, green eyes that could be contacts.
He was driving a red or burgundy SUV. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Town of Cary Police Department at (919) 469-4012 or Cary Crime Stoppers at (919) 460-4636.
Citizens are encouraged to be aware of their surroundings at all times and take precaution if they believe they are watched or followed.
Cary Police guidelines for if you are followed:
* Look confident and let him or her know you are aware of their presence.
* Don't be polite or engage in conversation. If they continue to follow you, cross the street or change directions.
* If this doesn't work, walk toward other people or occupied buildings and stay away from places where you might get cornered.
* If someone in a car follows you and is persistent or becomes obscene, write down the license tag number and report it to police.
* If you are trapped in your car, honk your horn in quick short bursts to attract attention.
* Make sure that all of the car doors are locked whenever you leave your vehicle. When returning to your car, have your keys ready so you can enter your car quickly and be aware of your surroundings. If you have to look into a purse or a pocket to find them, it takes extra time and you lose sight of what is around you, which could allow someone to sneak up on you.
* Make sure no one is hiding under your car.
* Before you enter your car, look to see if all of the doors are locked or if there are any uninvited passengers in the back seat or on the floor.
